Liam Brady has backed Arsene Wenger to transform Danny Welbeck into the next Thierry Henry at Arsenal.

The Gunners wrapped up a £16m deal to bring the England striker to Emirates Stadium from Manchester United on transfer deadline day last week.

Welbeck celebrated his switch to north London by scoring both goals in England’s 2-0 victory over Switzerland on Monday night.

And Arsenal legend Brady believes that Wenger will be able to get the very best out of the 23-year-old in the coming weeks and months.

“I’m delighted he’s signed for Arsenal,” Brady told BT Sport.

“Arsene Wenger’s track record with young players is strong. Look at Henry – when he came to Arsenal he was rough around the edges and was playing on the wing, like Welbeck.

“It took Henry time but Wenger polished him into a fine finisher and he can do the same with Welbeck.”
